The first Women’s Day was celebrated in 1909 in the US. But since 1975, the Women’s day is celebrated on 8th March every year after United Nations passed a resolution in this regard. Since then Women’s Day celebrations are part and parcel of the celebration list of every woman. It is widely celebrated by countries all over the world. Many countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Afghanistan, China have declared women’s day as a public holiday.
On this day it is customary in every society to give women a gift. The men are expected to celebrate this day with the women, who made a difference in their lives; who were by their side in their good and bad times. In Italy, men give yellow mimosas and chocolates to women to celebrate women day. In countries like Pakistan and Poland women’s day celebrations are marked by large processions and demonstrations by various women’s groups and feminists.
However there is a certain class of people who do not feel the need of a particular day to honor women. But there is a need to celebrate the socio-economic and political contributions of women to the world. Any civilization would not have existed without woman. Also, they should be honored to stand up against all the historical wrongs and oppression for centuries and bravely carving out space for themselves in the world. Women have always stood up for their families and nations in troubled times and have contributed to world peace.
So this women’s day, celebrate the support, love, care and courage of the women. Pamper the woman who was there when you needed her to look after your family, who was there to listen to you when you were sad, who was there to advice you about your love life.
